Good Times Only allowed here on SWIT

Good Times Only – Kolem So sometimes amid the thousands of submissions we get each week here at SWIT, I jump into the balloon and decide to head to a particular destination to check out what’s going on there. Hovering over beautiful Prague this week we picked up the sounds of Good Times Only and…

Super World Interview Time: We Comprehend The Other End

The Other End, from Bergen, Norway, is Ida Knoph-Solholm (Vocals, Guitar, Bass) and Alexander Breidvik (Guitar, Bass, Piano, Drum, Vocals). They’ve just released their self-titled debut EP and it’s quite something, we described the songs as brooding, lovelorn hymns to separation and loss. The sadly sweet melodies are adorned by Ida astonishing voice and it…

SWIT Premiere: savedhistory – las drogas son (no) buenas para ti

savedhistory – las drogas son (no) buenas para ti savedhistory is the mysterious Nadine G (Nads) from Manila. On her Bandcamp page, it simply says “for odd people”. That’s Gerry taken care of. We’re delighted to premiere her new EP “las drogas son (no) buenas para ti”. The songs are short, dreamlike and enigmatic. Ghostly…

Ignore Ferals at your peril

Ferals – Brendan Rodgers Big Music from Belfast band Ferals. Brendan Rodgers (like the title although I’m a gooner or a goner as we should probably be called these days) is the tune that likes to give.It’s got several different movements that kind of reminds me of the mighty Swerverdriver from back in the day.Plenty…

Part 1, wherein we discover Her Skin

Her Skin – Cut Out the Flowers Here is the gently sad, beautiful sung, folk-tinged “Cut Out the Flowers” by Her Skin. Love the understated touches – the keyboard, the whistling (the whistling!) and the little electrical shocks. The song is from the debut LP “Find a Place to Sleep” (WWNBB Collective). Her Skin is…

Angels with Dirty Faces

Dirty Faces – Hiding Place Dirty Faces are Lorcan Hamilton and Josh O’Kane, 2-piece (we can count) outfit from Derry (where else?). This is their debut “Hiding Place”, it’s a neat piece of jagged, electronic indie a la Joy Division with stonking bass lines and serious vocals. These guys are one (two?) to watch for…

I played Annabel Lee to my wild plum tree (it died)

Annabel Lee – Picked Last In Gym Class Hey, I was one of those kids who always ended up in goal, in fact, I was so bad that teams used to fight NOT to have me on their team. It sucks, so I completely identify with Annabel Lee’s new single “Picked Last In Gym Class”,…

Hands up who wants to hear Montauk Hotel’s new single?

Montauk Hotel – Hands Tommy walked into the offices at SWIT (broadcasting from inside Newgrange this week) supporting a Hollywood-esque Irish brogue and said “Sure there’s music comin’ from up near the well at the top field” “What the fuck is the problem with your accent Tom?” I replied “’Tis the curse of the little…

Super World Interview Time: Peredmova

Peredmova is Vladyslav Zarichnyuk (guitar, programming) and Vira Pravylo (vocals, keys)  and they are from Kyiv, Ukraine. We first heard them on the sublime, electronic dream that is “Я Іду до Тебе” (I’m Coming To You). They combine a wonderful visual aesthetic with a real talent for catchy dream pop and wrap it all up in…

Callesé hombre horrible turn a flower into a bouquet

Callesé hombre horrible – Tape EP Our Argentinian correspondent Paula McSera writes “This is my nephew Juani’s band. Give it a go.” So we did. And we liked it a lot. Our man in California, Eric Wiggle, said “Nice drums, guitar, tunesmithing”. Frannie Moran, taking a break from wandering the hills of Donegal chipped in…
